MODERN LEGENDS DATABASE FM 2012 - Beta v1 released

Hi folks, I've created a modern legends database with currently 690 players adjusted or added, made up of approximately 485 legends added and 205 current players that have been turned into juniors, with a current facepack of 300. Players are all from the "Modern" era - i.e. from 1966 onwards, although a few true greats from the early 60's are included. I would also like to add there is some plagiarism here, this DB is based on an old 2011 Legends Database I downloaded and then heavily modified. I renamed it so I don't know who's it was originally, but tbh it is pretty much changed beyond all recognition, so I don't feel it's any sort of rip off.My hope is to make this a truly hugely comprehensive database, I have over 1800 players planned at the moment, and that figure could well rise. In order to do thus I am going to need some help, hopefully some of you out there will fancy getting involved to build a really great game, either by play testing, researching specific team legends, sourcing photos, building the facepack, or whatever.I'm going to post the game concept in the next post. If it sounds interesting to you and you would like to get involved, just PM me on here and we can get something sorted.

CONCEPT: TEAMS


This is a modern legends database, I decided to make it thus because for me part of the fun of playing FM is familiarity with the players, so I wanted players I had either seen play myself or had regularly seen on TV in highlight reels. I didn't want guys from the 1900's who had scored a million goals at left half keeping John Barnes out of the England squad or Nigel Winterburn out of the Arsenal team. This is a game, not a historical record, I wanted players that excited me when I saw they where available and that I could picture in my head, rather than thinking "who is that?"


The game is going to be based around Legend Teams, all of whom will have there reputations set higher than all the other teams, so all the legends not in their squads will quickly end up there. The game will be Euro-centric I'm afraid, all big South American teams will have there reputations dropped, which means that all the Legends they have will quickly be snapped up the European sides, so that all the legends will end up playing in the same competitions.


There will be levels within the legend Teams. All legend teams will be split into groups, and there finances will be boosted and they will be given an underwriting Sugar Daddy as cahirman. Currently, the adjusted Legend Teams groups look like this (in brackets is the no. of adjusted players in their squad):


Real Madrid (22)
Barcelona (28)
Juventus (17)
Inter (14)
AC Milan (21)
Ajax (22)
FC Bayern (21)
Marseilles (22)
Man Utd (19)
Liverpool (23)


Red Star Belgrade (12)
Sampdoria (11)
Parma (12)
Napoli (8)
Lazio (13)
Fiorentina (11)
Roma (13)
Borussia Dortmund (14)
Arsenal (19)


Dynamo Kyiv (9)
Valencia (14)
At Madrid (3)
Sporting Lisbon (4)
Benfica (12)
Porto (10)
Stuttgart (6)
Werder Bremen (2)
Hamburg (5)
Bayer Leverkusen (9)
Paris Saint-Germain (8)
Tottenham (9)
Man City (3)
Chelsea (11)
Deportivo
Rangers (5)
Celtic (8)
PSV (10)
Kaiserslautern (4)
Koln (5)
Borussia Monchengladbach (4)
Lyon (4)
Monaco (10)
Newcastle (9)
Anderlecht (16)


Aberdeen (3)
Spartak Moscow (3)
Feyenoord (7)
Schalke (4)
Standard Liege (4)
Club Brugge


There are a few other clubs that have e few players (Everton (6), Bordeaux (6), Aston Villa (4), Leeds (9)). Hopefully by the time this is finished each club above will have at least 16 players (I already have squad list written out), and there will be an English premier league full of legend teams and players (again, squad list are already written).

CONCEPT: PLAYERS


All players will be assigned to a Legend club where possible, even if they only played a season there. Players will be aged in the following manner:

Year of ____ Age in
Birth _______ Game


36-41 ______ 26
42-46 ______ 25
47-51 ______ 24
52-56 ______ 23
57-61 ______ 22
62-66 ______ 21
67-71 ______ 20
72-76 ______ 19
77-81 ______ 18
82-86 ______ 16
87-91 ______ 15
92- ________ 14

So, say, Pele, who was born in 1940, will be 26 in game (or 25, depending on birthday). Platini, born in 1955, will be 23 and Dennis Bergkamp, born in 1969 will be 20.

Again, I have to admit to getting some help. All player ratings so far are based around these excellent posts on Xtratime Community : Welcome by a really great researcher called Dearman:

1. INDEX : Positional Rankings Of All-Time Greats - Xtratime Community

2. INDEX : All-Time International Squads - Xtratime Community


I should add that all of the player in post 1 above who qualify as modern legends are already in the database.

Anyway, thanks for reading all of this, please contact me if you feel like helping out in some way, hopefully we can get a few people together and make this into a really great database. Tomorrow I will post some pictures from the game, if you have any requsts for what you would like to see, post them and I will try and put them up.

I'm in for testing. Would like to rate too, but that's not my strongest point as the players I wouldn't know would be rated too low and the players I did know probably too high. Just count me in for testing.

WOW... WOW... Wow... Hold on there buddy. Dennis Bergkamp went big in Ajax, not Arsenal. He was already a fantastic player at Ajax. That's where it all started. Not Arsenal. Just clearing things up!

Agreed, but overall I'm going to try and balance out the squad strengths to make the game more of a challenge, and Ajax already have an amazing squad. Also, I would argue that Bergkamp would finish far higher up an all time greatest player poll at Arsenal than Ajax, thus making him more of an Arsenal legend than an Ajax legend, if that makes sense!

Yeah I understand, but he was probably (one of) the best midfielder Ajax has ever had. So about that poll, he would end up really, really, high.

This looks very good! Only one thing, no Martin Keown in the Arsenal legends? :( Him, Dixon, Adams and Winterburn were part of the famous "1-0 to the Arsenal" defence. Glad to see you have put Bergkamp in the Arsenal's legends, that's where most people will remember him for, and was voted #2 (correct me if I'm wrong I'm not 100% sure) best foreign player in the premier league ever.

Also that Madrid squad looks crazily good..

The full facepack is not complete, is that true? Otherwise, I like it thus far. Seems like you really picked the quality players, nicely rated. Still bugs me that Bergkamp is at Arsenal. ************. But I love it, in my opinion you could put the db out in the public, with or without facepack yet.

Yep, hopefully Keown will be in. Current list of Arsenal players for the finished DB currently missing are B. Wilson, Keown, Bould, McClintock, P. Davis, Merson, Rocastle, Lauren, Limpar, Parlour, O'Leary, M. Thomas, Stapleton, Talbot and A. Smith.

The problem, obviously, is time. I was hoping that people would get on board and be willing to finish of their own teams squads themselves. If you fancy putting this lot into the Arsenal squad, drop me a PM.
